The handbook, launched by Peak Performance Management, provides PC-generated details of driving policies and procedures, and allows companies to customise them electronically to meet their own requirements.
It covers health and safety legislation, driving hours, mobile phone use and licence checking and creates an audit trail to ensure a fleet is meeting its safety obligations.
Di Rees, business services manager at Leo Pharmaceuticals, who runs a fleet of 175 vehicles and is also a director of the Association of Car Fleet Operators, is one of the fleet managers currently using the handbook and welcomed it as 'an excellent tool for fleet managers'.
She said: 'It is ideal for updating existing drivers' handbooks and will save a lot of time for fleet managers.
'It is completely interactive and a lot of thought has gone into it. If you don't already have handbooks for your drivers with details of company policies, then it is a perfect starting point and saves a lot of time.'
Gill Shaw, fleet manager at Roche Products, which operates a fleet of some 320 cars, has also acquired the £150 system, which can be updated free over the internet.
She said: 'This is an excellent and comprehensive guide covering all aspects of driver and employee responsibility with regard to company vehicles.'
